Manchester United vs Stoke match preview
The Premier League Gameweek 23 comes to a close with Manchester United playing Stoke at Old Trafford.
Despite not playing, Manchester United have been firmly in the news this weekend, as they look to steal a march on Manchester City and sign Alexis Sanchez.
Certainly, this match on Monday will be dominated by events off the field with United closing in on the Arsenal attacker.
This could well inspire the Manchester United squad to improve their attacking performances.
And, could well mean that Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who has been linked with Arsenal as part of the deal, is not part of the squad to face Stoke.
